NFTU: Metropolitan Demetrius is the presiding hierarch of the GOC-K Eparchal Synod in the United States.  Upon the retirement of Metropolitan Pavlos (a well-known figure in “Old Calendarist” Orthodox history of recent years, who in turn followed his uncle, Met. Petros, who was perhaps the most iconic figure of Orthodox Greek Old Calendarists in the United States over the past 50 years) in December of 2013, Met. Demetrius was elected to succeed him in February of 2014.  Met. Demetrius along with Met. Moses and Bp. Sergius, and most of the clergy of HOCNA, left HOCNA  in 2012 over the Imiaslavie heresy being propagated in HOCNA.
